Whether you order a favorite on the menu or try something new, each time is a great dining experience at the Irish Bred Pub. The service is friendly and the balcony is now open for lunch and dinner from Monday through Saturday to enjoy the late spring nights, weather permitting. From the balcony, you can view the beautiful historic downtown Covington area.

The service at the Irish Bred Pub is friendly and they offer an amazing selection of beer on tap. The menu is extensive with Irish-inspired dishes. Everything is fresh and made to order. You can choose traditional fare or try their twist to a dish.

For the traditional diner, the restaurant has selections on the menu such as a Rueben sandwich, bangers and mash, the Knockmealdown Shepherd’s pie, Paddy’s fish and chips, and Irish beef & Guinness stew. There are also salads, wings, burger, steaks, and more. While these are great, if you want a modern twist to a traditional dish, start off with an appetizer of Reuben eggrolls or the blue cheese chips.

The blue cheese chips are amazing with the gooey, blue cheese sauce and bacon melting in your mouth. Or try the deliciously wicked, IBP bacon, pimento cheese dip. A flavorful favorite is the beef stew. Or get one of the burgers made from Certified Angus beef. If you are into a full range of flavors, the gitty-up horsey burger has horseradish smeared on it and is topped with swiss cheese and smoked mushroom salsa. It’s awesome! The chef’s pick is the bacon jammed packed burger with a combination of cheddar cheese, chipotle aioli, and beer bacon jam. Pick a side such as the onion rings, which are hand cut.

And don’t forget dessert! People talk about the bread pudding for a very good reason – it’s amazing!

Wash it all down with a pint. The Irish Bred Pub has a wide selection of beers and spirits. Then, when you are done eating in the evening, head upstairs to The Listening Room for nightly entertainment. It’s a great gathering place for friends.

If you come on Sundays, there is a Brunch menu. On the menu are selections such as steak and eggs, salmon or corned beef Benedict, and stuffed French toast. There is a good mix of traditional breakfast items as well as some twists to favorites. And if you have little ones, this restaurant is kid friendly with separate menus that also have good selections. There’s something for everyone so come and enjoy!
